Plans for the alterations to be
made in the Farmers National
Bank have been completed by
Architect John H. Brugler of
Danville. According to these places
the front will be of Indiana lime
stone and pressed brick, laid in
courses, one above the other, while
on both front and side, abundant
light will be obta:ned through
large plate glass windows, with
prism lights in the top.
The double entrance in the centre
of the front will open into the tiled
!obby which will occupy the great
er part of the entire building front.
To the right of the loboy will be
the cashier's public office, with his
private office in the rear, and still
futher back will be the president's
private office. To the left of the
lobby, as you enter, will be the
ladies'. room and in the rear of this
room are the private booths for safe
deposit use. A passageway leads
around the entire working space.
To the rear of the left of the
building as you enter will be the
directors' room, of good size and
handsomely furnished. Clothes
closets, toilets, telephone booths
and other conveniences will be in
stalled. The base of all the counters and
the various offices that face the
lobby will be of marble while large,
handsome pillars will support the
beamed ceiling and add to the gen
eral appearance. The finish will be
the -same as that of the present
woodwork golden oak.
The entrance to the upper floors
will be at the lower corner of the
ouilding where the jewelry store of
Mrs. Martin is now located. The

A fair sized audience was greatly
pleased with the entertainment
given by the Lafayette College
Glee and Mandolin Clubs in the
Normal Auditorium last Tuesday
night. The work of the clubs was
excellent throughout, and the
pianist, C. E. Straub is a perform
er of unusual ability. If any criti

singing too loud, probably not
realizing the great power of the
grand piano with the lid up.
The quartette was fine, and was
recalled several times. The bass
solo by Mr. Spengler was among
